(Memphis) A Yuengling beer truck got stuck under a train overpass at Front Street and Nettleton Avenue Tuesday.

Part of the roof was ripped back, and bottles of beer fell onto the road.

Although there is a sign warning drivers of the height, trucks often get stuck under this overpass.

Last Thursday, a stuck semi caused a traffic headache as people headed to the FedExForum to watch the Grizzlies play the OKC Thunder in Game 6.

A small moving truck also got stuck on Dec. 31, 2013.

    The city needs to find out what it will take to lower the passage under the bridge and then either do that or raise the bridge. It is not acceptable to have underpasses and cables preventing normal height trucks and buses from passing.

    That’s stupid, I drove a truck for years and never go stuck under a bridge. Before I went out with a truck I knew how high the truck was. All bridges has signs that tell how high they are.
    It is not the taxpayer that needs to tell a driver. The driver should know how high his truck is. If he has a route, the driver should be told what route to take that doesn’t have low bridges.
